Lovely.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Jagex full-time for more than a year

Pros- Free gym
- Other benefits such as free fruit
- Great co workers
- Overall great
- Generally a good atmosphere
- Good salary
- A high skilled amount of co workers

Cons- The CEO should have some more trust to the employers.
- Salary COULD be higher
- The work hours can be a little long some times

Advice to Senior Management- Remember to listen to the people who works for you. You have to start listening some more to the players too.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to work! Exciting and full of opportunity (for people with the right attitude!)

Technical Developer (Current Employee)
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

I have been working at Jagex full-time for more than a year

ProsFantastic people...I love my team, and ive made great friends here in a relatively short time.
Great benefits that resonate well with me and my friends.
Exciting work, its just cool working in the games industry and i love the status that gives me
Really cool office, especially since the canteen was set up as the food is brilliant and the staff great
Plenty of opportunities to develop and excel
A genuine company that tries to do the right thing
Great support when relocating to the area and a more friendly HR team than ive ever experienced

ConsGrowing very fast means a lot of change occurs regularly, but this isnt necessarily a bad thing as creates opportunities for people with the right attitude
There are a few v negative people here, many of them have been around for years and havnt worked anywhere else yet think they know everything and moan constantly about the new ideas being brought in by new blood. Their inflexibility is a sign of their inexperience in the real world and sometimes they can really irritate me / the new blood.

Advice to Senior Managementbetter strategies around integrating new starters with the old guard could be useful, though not sure what sort of things? Might relieve a friction point?

Great Place to work with great people!!

Jagex Employee (Current Employee)
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

I have been working at Jagex full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people are great!! I am working with some of the most talented people I have ever met in my life. A vast majority of the people at Jagex are not only work colleagues but also friends in and out of work.

Jagex is a very personable organisation and has a great employee benefits program including the softer benefits such as team fun funds, canteen, games room, bicycle repairs.

They're also really keen to get involved in supporting local charities which is really important to me.

ConsThere is a small but vocal minority of people who always seem to focus on the negative side of anything for example we have great facilities here with a stunning office space yet they moan about the integrity of the hand towels in the toilets.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fantastic place to work!

I have been working at Jagex full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery well experienced staff, well paid, I enjoy working with the games. I'd even do voluntary work at Jagex!

ConsVery few; maybe I've seen the better side, but it is a fantastic atmosphere, lovely staff and we have great events!

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on less about the money and more about the opportunities and content.
